where to stay in Bishop

by bernsie


I'm planning on visiting Bishop in November. Any advice on where to stay?


Re: where to stay in Bishop

We stayed at the Rodeway Inn...very nice facility with a pool, morning continental breakfast and right in the middle of town. For more information, go to our BLewJay homepage (Bishop).

Hi Spartan,
Thanks for the reply. I wrote to Rodeway and they reverted with a rate of USD85+tax per night . Is that expensive?
What about the location? Was it easy to get around? Did you have to drive around most of the time? My boyfriend and I are planning to drive from Yosemite into Bishop to do some trekking and perhaps some climbing - hopefully the weather won't be too cold (We're from Asia).

Hi Bernadette,

I just went to their website and plugged in some dates to see what rates I get and I found 3 rates...$72.00 (Smoking/Queen size bed), $76.50 (Non-Smoking/King size bed) and $81.00 (Smoking/2 Queen size beds). Try going to their website for exact dates and rates...

The town is not that big, so it's an easy walk from end to end, plus it's right in the middle of town (next to a park). Yosemite is not far away, but you may also want to visit Mt. Whitney (tallest mountain in the lower 48 states) and Mono Lake. I've got some write-ups on both places on our BlewJay VT pages.

I stay in Bishop often on business trips and the best is the Holiday Inn Express ask for a suite room. Walk about one block south to the Wiskey Creek for dinner. Yes you need to drive this is cowboy country. If you have time drive out to Body the ghost town/state park.

Travel Tips for Bishop

Tri County Fair - It's Good Cathartic Fun!

by tomatohead

If you are in town during Labor Day Weekend (first weekend in September), come to the Tri-County Fair.

You'll see/taste/touch blue ribbon salsa, beer, tomatoes, art, cats and dogs, etc.

In addition, you can go to a real live rodeo or destruction derby. (Destruction Derby tickets sell out fast!)

If you get hungry or thirsty, you can stuff yourself silly on various deep fat fried starches, mounds of sugar in different guises, and BEER!

Make a stop here for your backcountry permits

by tomatohead

If you are going to spend the night in the backcountry, you'll need to stop by the White Mountain Ranger Station first to get your permit. They are free and available the day before you intend to go in, at 11 am.

First come, first serve. There are trailhead quotas.

If you are absolutely sure you want to be on a certain trail head and your trip is do or die, pay the $5 and reserve your permit months in advance This place sells local topo maps and also rents bear cannisters.

Mono Lake, a recovering endangered ecosystem


In Mono County, near Lee Vining, at an elevation of 2067 meters (6781 feet), Mono lake is a green oasis in the dry Great Basin which makes it a unique ecosystem. This gives it a great importance as a birds’ heaven. It is about 7.5 km x 7.5 km. It had been almost sipped off by Angelinians. It is now a recovering endangered ecosystem. For more, look at my Mono Lake page
It is 65 miles north to Bishop on Highway 395.

Low carb and loving it!!!

by BLewJay about Carl's Jr. Restaurant

Trying to eat healthy while on a trip can be challenging, but we did our best by looking for salads. Unlike Jack in the Box, service was efficient and the food was delicious. We had the Charbroiled Chicken Salad-To-Go (charbroiled chicken, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cheese, croutons, black beans and spicy southwestern ranch dressing).

Spring north to Bishop


These two photos show the mountain range, north to Bishop. Sorry, I am unable to name these summits. Photo 1 might be White Mountain Peak but I would not give my head for that! Anybody can name these mountains? Help!
